Welcome to Great Glen U3A

An update on the building works at the Methodist Church

 The works are expected to continue until 28 July.  Other than the space for disabled drivers, the car park will be unavailable for this period as the contractor needs access.  Please therefore find alternative parking on the road or at the Village Hall.


U3A at the Wheelbarrow Race Saturday 2nd September 2017

This year instead of an Open Day we shall showcase our U3A at the fête which always accompanies the Great Glen Wheelbarrow Race.

 The race takes place round the village but there are various fun events on the Recreation Ground at the same time.  The whole event is in aid of LOROS.

 We shall a gazebo on the field and display photos and information to attract new members and raise the profile of Great Glen U3A.  Most exhibitors raise money for LOROS by selling items on the day but we shall be making a donation.  We shall be holding a simple raffle at both of our main meetings in July and August with the proceeds being given as our donation.. We hope you will remember to bring an extra £1 or £2 in order to take part in these so that we can present the fête organisers with a reasonable donation for LOROS.
